Two kickoffs Friday morning for the Salvation Army's holiday campaign.
The Parkersburg Salvation Army's Angel Tree drive invites everyone to sponsor a youngster in need for the holiday season.
This tree is located at Belk's in Grand Central Mall and others are set up throughout the area.
"It's going to have their names and their ages and their wishes and their needs," says Lt. Mechelle Henry with the Parkersburg Salvation Army. "We just ask our donors, our sponsors and people in the community to pull one of those angels and sponsor one of them and brighten up their Christmas morning."
At the same time, the Salvation Army's most visible holiday fundraiser - the annual kettle drive - got under way.
This year, WTAP is partnering with the Parkersburg Salvation Army in its annual Christmas fundraisers.
